Ice fishing forum problems.

Question

sirsunnyslayer

Why won't my computers at home open the ice fishing forum? Every other forum on this site opens just fine but all I get on the ice fishing forum is the ice leaders banner at the top and that's it.

I'm stumped, help me out. I don't think it's a firewall issue since the other forums open and I'm pretty sure I don't want to take down the firewall just to read one forum.

This happened to me last year. Frustrating!!!

I'm taking a wild guess here but... you are browsing the internet with Explorer.

I think what happens (or happened) is you picked up some spyware that is giving you problems with that forum. Just a guess, but I've had aweful problems with Internet Explorer.

Try loading Mozilla Firefox. Its a free web browser and had much fewer issues with spyware, pop-ups, etc.

This was my fix. Hope it works for you. wink.gif

Is it possible that you need to clear your temp internet files folder. We have an issue with mitchell all the time at work where a file becomes corrupted and pages will not open. Clear the temp internet files folder and all is well.

Hanson, I run spybot and adaware weekly along with Norton.

Airjer, that didn't do it either. I'll try it without my popup blocker.

sunnyslayer- Thanks for posting this! I've had a heck of a time with my computer and some areas of sites would not work, and I couldn't get into the ice forum either. Now I can. grin.gif

I had the same problem. I found that something in the Norton suite causes it, though I am not exactly sure what. I disable my complete Norton suite while on Fishing Minnesota then turn it back on afterwards. The Ice Fishing forums wouldn't come up at all, plus a lot of ads in other forums too.

Norton plus Internet explorer = problems. Norton used to be the best and now it is more problematic then anything else. You would be better served with Micro Trend and run firefox. If you continue to use norton you are best to completely delete it and reinstall it. You must remove it with a norton utility. If you attempt to delete it with add remove programs through control panel you will have other problems. What probably happened was there was a norton warning sometime when you were in fishing minnesota and you told it to take action by mistake and now it keeps blocking that site. If you are paying for norton you should maybe look elsewhere. I had norton and two virus and PC micro trend found them and helped me remove them. If you download and run Firefox like previously mentioned you will notice your web sites load at least three times faster then with internet explorer.

Other than the ad blocker issue (is that Nortons fault?) on this particular site I've never had a problem with it or Explorer on either of my three Dell computers. The chances of me changing any of it are pretty slim, and how much faster than instantly can pages load?

If norton thinks that an intrusion has happened it will ask you if you want to ignore it , block it or allow it one time. If you were to choose to block it say if a pop up happened while you were in the ice fishing forum Norton will block you when you go to ice fishing even if there is no pop up. I am not saying this is what has happened only that it could be one possibility. I used to use IE with pop up stopper and the popups still got through. Since switching all three of my computers to Firefox no popups have happened. I frequent sites including this one a year ago where firefox was unbelievably fast compared to IE. Last year fishing minnesota fixed whatever the problem was last year so it is much faster now. A true test is a site like Iboats that runs much slower and you will really notice a difference.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
